Functional Catch - this will be the basics of catch play integrating the fundamentals of each position group - double play turns and throws, relay catches and throws, ground ball footwork and throws on backhands and forehands, getting behind a fly ball and throwing to a base, tags, fielding bunts, etc.
Infield Stations - we will cover ground ball fundamentals and build into advanced plays - double plays, diving, forehands and backhands.
Beat the Infielders - a game designed to challenge the infielders and put pressure on them to not only catch the ball but make a quality throw. Players and coaches will be hitting ground balls in an attempt to "beat" the infielders.
Pitching and Catching - pitchers will get to throw live bullpens to catchers - both groups will receive instruction during this time.
Hitting Stations - we will use tees, front toss, machines and live batting practice to cover the mechanics of a great swing as well as the approach for handling tough pitching. We will discuss and train hitting hard line drives.
Games - we will play games including over-the-line (focus on quality defense and hitting the ball up the middle), two-base (requires defensive positioning and communication as well as offensive strategy and directional hitting), and coach/player pitch scrimmages.
